  1. Sounds like post-move lipservice. He had full rights to block Heisley's franchise extortion, he chose not to. He saw the FedEx corporate $$$ flying in thanks to the Memphis move and made no effort to block it. That being said, I don't know if I was ever sold on BC as being a viable franchise location. Their horrid management helped none.
  2. I don't think you're the only one. Frankly, the shirt is trash.
  3. Wow, a gun. Just as pandering and offensive as those New Era caps blatantly glorifying gang culture.
  4. Agreed all across the board. The name Flight was the cream of that crop and the fans liked it as well.. Too bad Bob Johnson had a huge ego... I don't think the franchise ever recovered from the naming fiasco. The fans had spoken, yet Bob Johnson in his almighty hubris decides to name the team AFTER himself. Carolina then knew that this was a penny-ante operation and henceforth afforded the franchise the respect and attention it deserved: none.
  5. Frankly, the Mavs chose the WORST possible logo. And the worst possible color combo.
  6. Ew. I thought you were going to reminisce about the 1990 era pullovers, but then you had to go link to some sleeveless vest/milkman hat garbage?
  7. Both were hideous (and more than an unsettling precursor to Flying Elvis that was coming a few decades later).
  8. I know nothing about California, but wouldn't San Diego be a better place to move. Anaheim is just a suburb of Los Angeles, while San Diego is a completely different city. "Moving" the team to Anaheim, would basically just be changing the team name slightly (like the Angels did). While moving to San Diego would actually bring a whole new fanbase into the equation and might actually encourage some change. People are still talking about moving the Clips? LOL. Sterling just built them a palatial practice hq that's the envy of even the Lakers. They ain't goin' nowhere. And leave the logo alone. Chances are we'd be stuck with something even worse.
  9. I thought Villa myself. Still, clean and beautiful. Soccer shirts should be simple. Tacky adornments are not necessary.
  10. Umm, no it doesn't. It looks like a complete mess. A complete mess? It's just three thin stripes! Good lord!
  11. I thought the era of naming-rights stupidity was dead thanks to the economy-in-toilet. <shakes head> This right here gives me serious concern as to Stephen Ross's ability to successfully run an NFL franchise. On the basis of this alone, he's an idiot.
  12. This is the one I love. The other two are utterly boring.
  13. 1. The Kings run the Staples Centre, they're fine. If they've been in no danger of relocation for 42 years, they're in no danger now. 2. The Sharks have a huge fanbase and are in no danger. 3. See #2 4. The Blues are back, this year, anyway; also, 42 years, no danger, etc. Yet all those teams are technically in the Sunbelt. See what I mean? You have one standard for the Sharks, Stars, etc, and another for the Coyotes, Hurricanes, etc. The last thing I'll say on this matter is the hypcrasy shown on the southern teams are as bad as the world's treatment of Israel. (I won't post on this tread again.) I don't think anyone's ever said that the Carolina franchise made a blunder moving to NC. The fanbase has been rabid. Phoenix, fair or not, just gives the impression of not really giving a damn about the team. Having the arena out in the sticks, surrounded by a lovely maze of interstate, helps NOT.
  14. I miss the old hands-for-ball Bullets logo. If I ever find a classic satin starter jacket with that, in my size, i am buying (money no object).
  15. The beaverhead on the cap "P" and the damn tail accent on the shirt scripts nearly ruin what should be a killer redo. I like where they were going, the design team just went a bit too overboard with the details.
  16. Weren't there a couple of years where the Falcon was actually placed inside the sleeve striping? They could go for that look. Regardless, this is my favorite uniform the Falcons ever wore. The black-heavy set of Glanville and Primetime was far too plain. Even if doesn't see the field, looks like Reebok plans on making this: Hopefully that's an error - those numbers better be gray when the finished product hits the racks. Gray or white numbers, that's still an absolute beauty of a jersey. Why they dumped that for Glanville's ridiculous "man in black" schtick is beyond me.
  17. They think he's too small for the NFL. His backup at Missouri was getting more looks from NFL scouts than Daniel was. I just looked at this years list of undrafted free agents who have signed, these two along with Daniel really stand out to me. Browns signed Gram Harrell (Texas Tech)- Set the NCAA record for passing TDs and had multiple 5,000 yard seasons. Vikings signed Ian Johnson (Boise State) - Dude was ice cold in college, loved the proposal after the OU game. If Sonny Cumbie couldn't make it, neither would Graham Harrell. Gimmick offense, tailor-made for gaudy QB stats - no team's touching that with a draft pick. Andre Ware/David Klingler anyone?
  18. Safe? It's beyond safe at this point, it's engraved in stone tablet.
  19. They changed to a normal number font from the rounded font they had last. Huzzah! Looks so much better ! The rounded number font always bothered me, esp. when the primary helmet logo is a BLOCK "W".
  20. Yay for the 70s' j-note! Funny how that still looks relevant while the 1996 redo is about as dated as Zubaz pants. Simplicity of design always wins out over some logo trying to do way too much and go overboard with the imagery and font goofiness.
  21. Awesome find. I hated Blackburn's kits solely because of that nonsense.
  22. Love it. My only quibble is the now-unnecessary extra-black around the SF logo. Still, a huge upgrade. Completely decluttered the shirt, big time.
  23. The oil crest needs no modernization or updating. No gears, worker man, hideously-stupid robodrip, or any other iconography is needed. Just the oil drop and the insanely cool oiled-letter font. Gah. Let's let franchises enjoy their old logos without the incessant need to "fierce" it up. 5 stanley cups and the greatest hockey player of all time : that's enough reason to never change that logo.
